Party beneath the stars in classic Hollywood style at this party with two dance floors, five full bars, alluring go-do dancers, a dazzling countdown to midnight, a hieroglyphics light show, and more.

Home to the very first Hollywood premiere back in 1922, the Egyptian will be transformed into party central to ring in a glamorous 2014. Learn More

30th Anniversary! Mommie Dearest, 1981, Paramount Pictures, 129 min, Drama/Melodrama/Biopic, USA.
Faye Dunaway scorches as Joan Crawford in this blistering exposé of the icon’s troubled and abusive relationship with her adopted daughter, Christina Crawford (who penned the memoir on which the film is based). Told from the perspective of grown-up Christina (Diana Scarwid) remembering her traumatic upbringing, “Mommie” Joan crumples under the pressures of alcohol, men and show business, and turns into an emotionally manipulative domestic monster. Though a critical disaster on its initial release, earning an abundance of Razzie Award wins and nominations, the film has since become a cult touchstone, thanks to a ferocious performance by Dunaway and no-holds-barred direction by Frank Perry (The Swimmer, Play it as it Lays). With Mara Hobel as young Christina, Steve Forrest as Joan’s Hollywood lawyer boyfriend, hopelessly loyal to MGM, and Howard Da Silva as the screaming studio titan himself, Louis B. Mayer.
